Prestige 690 to premiere at Cannes
The French builder will stage the world premiere of the 690 from its F-Line range of flybridge motor yachts, along with the flagship X70 launched last year and four other models.
The Prestige 690 is set for its world premiere
Prestige is set to stage the global debut of its new 690 at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival, which will be held from September 7-12. With an overall length of 70ft 4in (21.54m), the 690 succeeds the 680 as the largest model in the French yard’s F-Line range of flybridge motor yachts.
The 240sqft flybridge on the Prestige 690
The Prestige 690 features a 240sqft flybridge that the Groupe Beneteau brand describes as a “reference in her category”. On the main deck, the aft cockpit features a single stairway to the large swim platform and a sunpad suspended above the transom door.

The interior includes an aft galley and dining area, a slightly raised saloon forward and a private stairway to the master suite in the bow. Aside from the master, the lower deck can accommodate tow more full-beam double guest cabins or a full-beam double and two twins. Volvo IPS 1200 and IPS 1350 engine systems are available, with the SeakeeperSK18 gyroscopic stabiliser system an option.
Prestige’s flagship X70 will make its Cannes debut

The entry-level Prestige 420 will also show at Vieux Port
Other Prestige models on show at Cannes comprise the 460S from the sportfly S-Line and three flybridge models – the 590, 520 and the entry-level 420 that premiered at the previous Cannes show, in 2019.
